Default Sorting a list of numbers

I have inherited an excel file with numbers across 100 columns and over 300
rows with several blank cells (likely 15%). I would like to format these
numbers across 10 columns and however many rows are necessary, but without
any blank cells, in ascending order down each column.
Can someone help me how to do this? Thank you.

If desired, send your file to my address below. I will only look if:
1. You send a copy of this message on an inserted sheet
2. You give me the newsgroup and the subject line
3. You send a clear explanation of what you want
4. You send before/after examples and expected results.
